- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I went in to see Dr. Chang because I have been having problems with dry, cracking, painful skin on the inside of my nose and nosebleeds for over a year. Dr. Chang was very short with me and very rude, did not listen to what I had to say, and kept telling me, "Your nose looks fine, you're not giving me anything to work with." I very carefully explained my symptoms to him the best I could but felt like he wasn't listening to anything I was saying anyway. He kept asking me the same questions over and over again when I told him I didn't know the answer. I had told him my nose wasn't acting up currently but that it was a chronic problem I have been having for over a year and the pain/dryness/bleeding comes and goes. I had made the appointment two weeks before I was able to get in and at the time I made the appointment it was acting up pretty badly. He told me, "I don't see anything that I can work with here and you're not giving me anything. Maybe if you make an appointment when you're actually having a problem I could help you." I tried to explain that I HAD made the appointment when it was acting up but he cut me off and told me he couldn't help me. In fact he told me, "Your symptoms just aren't playing out nicely into a clean diagnosis so I'm just not sure what I can do for you." Not only did he have a horrible bedside manner but he had already made up his mind that nothing was wrong with me before he even came into the room.
